See which sides your favorite celebs took on the Yanny/Laurel debate


It’s unanimous that the Yanny/Laurel debate has become the new “dress.” But do your favorite celebrities agree with what you hear?

Civil war has struck the internet once again. Before, it was the dress. Now, it’s Yanny or Laurel, and the internet is firmly taking sides… for the most part.

It all began when Cloe Feldman posted a video clip to Twitter asking everyone if they heard “Yanny” or “Laurel.” Things quickly got heated, as people everywhere began to chime in on what they heard.

Have you joined Team Yanny or Team Laurel? Pick your side wisely, because our favorite celebrities have certainly made their stances clear.

Team Yanny

Here are all the celebrities who’ve identified the part of the audio clip I like to call “the devil’s whisper.” It isn’t the bassy, booming “Laurel,” but you can hear it layered slightly above whatever the lower voice is saying. Apologies to anyone who heard this creepy whisper right out the gate.

Team Laurel

Here’s the team that hears things at face value. It’s loud; it’s clear, and it’s (cough, cough) right. Hearing Laurel on repeat in that monotone robot-voice is also kind of creepy. But it’s no devil’s whisper.

Team Inbetween

Some of the few and most noble people are gifted with hearing both sounds. They are neither Team Laurel nor Team Yanny but are of a divergent class that knows much more than us mortals. They hold within them the secrets of the universe.
